Hey guys, quick question. My 5D is having this issue where every other actuation, the viewfinder stays black and the mirror stays up until I either: A) turn the lens mount partially (as if I was taking the lens off) or B) click the shutter button a third time.

I'm assuming it's going to be an expensive repair. Should I repair it and keep it, or repair it and then sell it off for a 5DII? I really don't need a 5DII by any means, but I sure wouldn't mind having one. I'm just not sure which one is the better option, as in bang-for the buck.

Yepp, I checked that option. I never have that enabled. I was using my camera and after a few shots it just started happening.

Edit: Just checked again... this is weird... Only happens with the 50 1.8 attached? Just tried it with my 17-40 and no problems to be found?
Edit2: Good deal. Just called them to update them on my issue. They said that they'll send my a pre-paid form as if I'm sending it in for the mirror-reinforcement and they'll also take a look at the issue I'm having with the 50mm.

Its obvious that your copy of the plastic fantastic is haunted. I suggest sacrificing a goat at midnight on Ken Rockwell's porch.

I'd check the pins on the nifty fifty to make sure none is dirty or damaged. A poor contact can produce all sorts of weird signs.

I am thinking about buying a used 5D for $1000 with extra battery. Has had the shutter replaced and the mirror fix done and is considered refurbished by Canon. The camera has been used in some kind of project digitalizing books. Have no idea of actuations. Generally if the camera has had a new shutter installed and looked over by Canon should I consider this basically a new camera or are there a lot of other things to go wrong based on high usage.
I could also buy a 5D for $750 but the owner claims high use and no work done on the camera.
Thanks,
Bob

That was a good story Bob! :)

I'll assume there was a question in there.. I would be leery of any camera used for book digitizing. It involves taking an image of every page (or two pages) of a book. Assuming it's every two pages, and you digitize say 5-6 decently sized novels, that's ~1,200 clicks.. that would be a standard day in digitizing land. Multiply that out by a few months. Even it the shutter was replaced, that's some heavy usage.
